Red Paddle Co 22ft Dragon racing SUP - a new sport is born.
« on: September 08, 2016, 10:24:33 AM »
For 2017, Red Paddle Co announced it is time to unleash the dragon (#unleashthedragon). They have created the ultimate team racing stand up paddle board. Taking cues from the dragon boats of old, the aptly named Dragon inflatable paddle board is a 4 person (or more if smaller paddlers) racing stand up paddle board. But where it differs from the Ride XL, SUPsquatch and Starboard Starship we are familiar with, is the inline standing position of all the paddlers. Basically a stand up dragon boat. Ding!

"Training" is perhaps too strong a word.



Sad to think that the best paddler in this group is a 70-year-old geezer in compression socks. I could be convinced to bring it, but paddling it 30 miles? Probably not me.

But here's the thing PB, notwithstanding any spills thrills or other calamity, I get the sense that the four of you together could do better in a flat-water distance race than any one in the group alone.  What a great idea for teambuilding!

Yes, it's actually VERY fast. I haven't put my paddlecoach on it yet, but even with those goobers (grandkids and my daughter) paddling we were substantially faster than my Blackfish. My daughter was pretty helpful--she was working hard at it. The other two were spotty.

If we could only get everything/everyone else working so well together we'd be in business.
